Mystery Cthulhu Idol

I love when reality mirrors a Mythos story.

Over on Quora, someone asked "What's the coolest thing you've ever found in a thrift shop?"  Rick Rhay answered with this amazing find:
It is vaguely Lovecraftian, though it doesn’t match any of Lovecraft’s descriptions of the Cthulhu idol identified in “The Call of Cthulhu.” It is rich with symbols. On the front it features a Valknut, a Norse symbol representing fallen soldiers, along with a Cthulhu-esque “face” with deep hollow eye sockets.
It's a wonderful piece, but I admit to being stumped who the artist might be.  Which is something of an accomplishment considering the hundreds of Cthulhu idols we've featured over the years.

Anyone familiar with who the artist might be?  I've tried doing an image search on Tineye and Google, but can't find any matches.

Update:  My thanks to the commenters who pointed it it's a piece from the Mysterious Package Company.

Broken Talisman Printable Prop

I've always been surprised handouts and physical props aren't used more often in traditional fantasy tabletop games. If you're looking to jazz up your own game, Crooked Staff Publishing has a nifty Broken Talisman prop available as a pay-what-you-want downloadable PDF.  They even have a handy tutorial on turning the print file and a scrap of foamcore into a physical prop that makes an ideal plot token.

Great Cthulhu

Here's something you don't see every day- the pommel of a Cthulhu-themed umbrella.  Not the sort of thing I usually like, but the sculpt from Ghost of Doll is outstanding.
